Bible Ballistics: BBs #485  Be Still……Really???

 

Just a few passages today to get us through a busy Friday with some encouragement from The Word. Sometimes we just need to take a break with Jesus!!

Be still,

and know

that I am God:

I will be exalted among the heathen,

I will be exalted in the earth.

11 The LORD of hosts is with us;

the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.”   Psalm 46:10-11

To ‘be still” is often a hard thing to do, but when we don’t take time to “be still” before God, we become overcome with the busy-ness of life that continually bombards us.

Come unto me,

all ye that labour

and are heavy laden,

and I will give you rest.

29 Take my yoke

upon you,

and learn of me;

for I am meek and lowly in heart:

and ye shall find rest

unto your souls.

30 For my yoke is easy,

and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30

We have a wonderful Savior who calls us to walk beside Him as He promises that when we “yoke up” with Him, that He is the strength and sustenance that we need in any situation. It’s when we try to pull our own load that we become weary in soul, mind and body! Jesus knows that we need “rest unto your souls” and HE will provide it—even when the weariness is from serving HIM!

And the apostles gathered themselves together unto Jesus,

and told him all things,

both what they had done,

and what they had taught.

31 And he said unto them,

Come ye yourselves

apart

into a desert place,

and rest a while:

for there were many coming and going,

and they had no leisure

so much as to eat.” Mark 6:30-31

So as you hustle about on this busy day, take some time to look up, and draw near to Jesus and “rest” in HIM!

Know ye that the LORD

he is God:

it is he that hath made us,

and not we ourselves;

we are his people,

and the sheep of his pasture.

4 Enter into his gates

with thanksgiving,

and into his courts

with praise:

be thankful unto him,

and bless his name.

5 For the LORD is good;

his mercy is everlasting;

and his truth endureth

to all generations.” Psalm 100:3-5

Amen and Amen!!!
